Why are we beating up on Spike Lee again?

There's someone here who has never seen a Spike Lee joint? Sheesh.

Why can't we make this a triple threat match:  Spike Lee vs. Quentin Tarantino vs. Woody Allen?

Oh wait, that did happen.  Lee vs. Tarantino with Allen as the special guest referee.  Allen killed them both when Soon-Yi threatened to give him no loving.

I think it's been pretty well established by now who that is*.

I haven't seen a Spike Lee film either, but I went with Marty anyway. It's probably not fair, but I'll be an outlier I guess, not that it matters since the poll is so lopsided.

Spike Lee must have voted for himself.

There isn't a whole lot of love for dear Lee on these boards, is there? Well, except when he's pitted off against Oliver Stone.

There is a whole lotta love for Lee i think (or for certain films at the very least) - this match-up however is just a straight new york beat down.

Spike Lee V Woody Allen next?

Too easy, Allen would run away with it. (Thats your cue to post the poll)

Spike Lee V Woody Allen next?

Overall I'd take Allen. As far as who's next movie I'd want to see I'd got with Lee (I've not yet seen VCB, but it sounds like that might change my opinion).

Marty vs. Woody would be special though.

Indeed it would. Whoever the usual pollmakers are, get to work

I'm bringing back topics with the "120 days" warning. Just try and stop me!

I think Scorsese is easily the better director. This poll seems to agree.

No, but it's one of my joys in life. :)

My previous vote was "Never seen a Spike Lee joint", by the way.

Well then. I see we are still friends forever.

It looks like I voted for Spike Lee.

I hadn't voted before, so I just added to Spike's total -- doubling it?! WTF?
